Hampshire College Update: report to follow soon

The promised longer report on the events surrounding the talk by IDF Sergeant Benjamin Anthony of "Our Soldiers Speak," will indeed follow, probably late tonight.

I'm behind schedule because we're still coping with the aftereffects of the Blizzard of Oz (no, not that one; this one) and a backlog of real work (you know: that pesky day job).  Also discovered I needed to fix a few typos and other details.

In the meantime:

It was noteworthy that, on the morning after the event, Hampshire College President Marlene Fried issued a statement informing the community of the disruptions and affirming the need to be able to conduct "open dialogue and discussion" on controversial issues.
